Job Opportunities

March 23rd ETS Assessment Development Intern, GRE

The Assessment Development Division of Educational Testing Service is seeking freelance writers, advanced graduate students, teachers, lecturers, and others who have an appreciation for good writing and a sense of the kinds of texts encountered by graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Successful candidates will work with ETS test development staff in developing reading comprehension materials for the GRE® revised General Test on subject matter relating to physical sciences, biological sciences, social science, and the humanities.

The six-week program will begin June 29th and end August 7th. Summer employees will work 8-hour days, Mondays-Friday, at the ETS campus in Princeton, NJ.

Candidates should submit a short (no more than one-page) sample text that they believe would be suitable for testing critical reading skills. The sample should not be a self-generated piece of writing, but rather an excerpt of material from a published source. It should exemplify writing that exhibits a level of complexity comparable to what would be encountered in graduate school, and it should be engaging to an academically diverse group of readers. The sample should submitted along with a CV or resume. Please include a citation for the source.

Interested candidates should apply online no later than Monday, March 23rd.
